Steve Lacy has a bad habitIt is not destroying other people’s property.
The rising star had a moment on stage in New Orleans on Monday night (October 24) when, during a performance of his smash hit “Bad Habits,” he smashed an audience member’s disposable camera.
In fan-filmed footage circulating on social media, Lacy hits a camera thrown by someone near the front of the stage.
Moments later, an outstretched hand passes Lacy a disposable camera – it’s unclear if it’s the same object that struck the singer – and he immediately smashes it.
Not long after, Lacey was reportedly making his debut at the Orpheum Theater.
Social media users expressed their support for the 24-year-old singer and his dramatic exit, while others said he overreacted.
Now, Lacy has shared his thoughts. In short, he has nothing to apologize for.
Writing on Instagram, Lacy commented, “My shows are fun as hell! Don’t throw disposable cameras at me, grab a vibe and shout out to the people who come to connect. I had a great time last night at Nola’s. I hate losing the beauty of the connection I have with so many people in the crowd – when something negative happens.
He adds, “I don’t believe I have to forgive anyone—maybe I could have responded better? Sure. Always. I am a student of life. But I am a real person with real feelings and real reactions.
Throwing projectiles at performers rarely ends. “I am not a product or a robot. I’m human,” Lacy continues. “I continue to give my all in these shows. Please come with respect for yourself and others please love you thank you.”
Lacy was promoted to the big league earlier this year with “Bad Habit,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
